CHEWDAISM:A Taste of Jewish Montreal

Struggling with their own proverbial “YidLife Crisis,” two Montrealers on the cusp of middle age return to Montreal to discover their own mixed-up heritage in the story of Jewish Montreal, as told through an entire day's worth of eating in and around the city.

CHEWDAISM: A Taste of Jewish Montreal follows Jamie and Eli as they discover the roots of the city’s Jewish community through a series of classical Jewish eateries telling the story of their community in the last 100 years, with various guests along the way sharing tales and anecdotes.
